The India eBirding challenge for April 2015 was an echo of April the previous year. The target was to upload at least 20 complete, effort-based birdlists during the month. In April last year, 17 birders met or exceeded this target. Given the way eBird has been growing in India, we were curious about how many rose to the challenge this time!
Overall, during April, the number of complete, effort-based lists of at least 15 min duration was 2,853. In all, 408 birders uploaded 3,352 lists of all types from April, together accounting for over 62,700 observations of birds from across India.
Of all the birders who uploaded lists in April, 35 uploaded 20 or more eligible lists for the month. These 35 are (as always, excluding group accounts):
Arathy S Kumar
Dr George P J
Ganeshwar S V
Hitha P T
M D Madhusudan
Neethu George Thoppan
Sachin Krishna M V
T R Shankar Raman
Many congratulations to all of them!
One of these 35 was chosen using a computer-generated random number to receive a small gift, and that person is
M D Madhusudan
